I was very pleased with the hotel accommodation from the comfortable bed to the very friendly staff. Although I was told there were no rooms available when I arrived, although I had reserved a room with a king sized bed, the front desk clerk was able to find one with 2 queens. That was fine with me. The room was...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 March 2017

We spent a 3 day weekend at the Fairmont. Perched atop a hill, the views of the Bay are spectacular! The pillow top beds are heavenly, and the rooms are quiet. The Happy Hour in the Tonga Room reminded us of the Disneyland Tiki Room-with adult beverages. My daughter and I dressed up and enjoyed the afternoon tea. She loved...

When you walk in you seem as welcome as an old friend. Doormen, bell staff, front desk personnel all take the time to learn your name and act like they're happy you're there. The young lady who checked me in devised some sightseeing strategies which were "on the money". The rooms, while not mammoth were comfortably large, bed very comfortable,...

We landed at the Fairmont after a very unfortunate experience at another local hotel. We needed to suddenly move and the staff at the Fairmont were just so welcoming, professional and kind, working hard to insure that we had the best possible experience. Due to the sudden nature of the reservation we could not get our first night in the...

Nice rooms with modern baths. Public rooms very attractive. Particularly enjoyed service from fantastic concierge, Thomas Wolfe, who even fixed my eyeglasses. Highly recommend. Tonga Room an added attraction, with live band and rain shower.

Lovely hotel with super helpful staff. Being complete newbies to SF we needed lots of advice on where to visit etc. The staff gave us loads of helpful information. A visit to the Tonga restaurant in the hotel is a must! Great food & the band were brilliant !

We weren't disappointed by the Fairmont. It deservedly has a great reputation. The lobby area is impressive. Our room was in the tower and had a great view looking north of the bay. The room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. The hotel is also in a great location -- it's a downhill walk in each direction and it is within...

I was attracted to the Fairmont for two reasons: it's quite iconic in San Fran and it was offering a deal. It doesn't disappoint, but i find it hard to rate it as excellent as many do on TA. It was ok. Big and of it's time. It's made me realise when on business, I like business hotels and this...

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
